TURKEY'S ENTRANCE TO BRING MORE RIGHTS FOR IP OWNERS?


The BBC reports that the EU has offered to begin talks with Turkey that could ultimately lead to Turkey becoming a member of the EU. 3 October has been offered as a start date for the talks, which could take as long as 15 years, though Turkey has not officially responded yet. Turkey’s entry to the EU though is likely to be dependent on its taking steps to recognise Cyprus.

The IPKat notes that if Turkey does accede, that’ll be one more country in which proprietors’ Community trade marks and designs will be effective. He wonders though which will come first – Turkey’s accession or the Community patent?
